Ramaphosa not distracted by 'issues' with Public Protector | TammyPetersen87

August 18, 2019 Ramaphosa has taken Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane' s report, in which it was found that he deliberately misled Parliament in November last year, on review. Her legal team has filed a record of the evidence she relied on in her report on Ramaphosa's campaign for the ANC presidency and a R500 000 campaign donation from Gavin Watson - the chief executive of African Global Operations (formerly known as Bosasa), News24 reported last week. It is understood that the evidence, filed under Rule 53, includes bank statements of the various entities involved in the campaign as well as emails and correspondence that formed part of the Public Protector's probe. Uniform Rules of Court In terms of Rule 53 of the Uniform Rules of Court, a party who wants to have the courts review the decisions of another party can request that they produce the record which underpins that decision. The president was granted an interdict on Monday, unopposed by the Public Protector, preventing her from enforcing any of the remedial action in her report. Two weeks ago, attorneys for Ramaphosa wrote to Deputy Judge President Aubrey Ledwaba requesting that parts of the record be sealed to protect third party confidential information. The letter, by attorney Peter Harris, also mentioned that the president's legal team believed some of the evidence relied on by Mkhwebane was"unlawfully obtained". In the directive, seen by News24, lawyers representing Ramaphosa also wrote to Ledwaba on Tuesday, August 13. They effectively requested that the record be sealed. Ledwaba wrote in his directive that since the issue around the records from the Public Protector's office has not been resolved, the Rule 53 record must be filed with Ledwaba's office by August 15, and not with the registrar, as would be the norm. This effectively seals the file. GET THE NEWS at your fingertips and Read more: News24
